API documentation

Complete and accurate documentation is the most important factor for developers when using an API. It is considered even more important than service availability and response time!

High-quality API documentation

High-quality API documentation gives developers confidence in the API, the service and the brand. Poor documentation gives the impression of a poorly maintained API.

  • API documentation supports successful adoption of an API
    By understanding the full capability of the API, developers use more functionality and, therefore, further increase adoption of the service.
  • API documentation is the ‘Marketing’ for an API
    Producing high-quality API documentation and making it easily accessible is the best way to promote an API
